Tips-y Tuesdays: Double Pie Crust Pot Pie

Recently I made a quiche with a new pie crust recipe I was trying out. There was some extra dough, so I decorated the edges a bit…


I used some new animal cookie cutters I have been wanting to use. They turned out really cute!


Unfortunately, when I went to bake the crust, this happened…


Poor elephants. It still made a tasty crust for the quiche.


This crust was the first time I ever used shortening. I liked the flakiness, so I decided to try again with it, but to make a double crusted pot pie.





I made sure to keep it extra chilled this second time. I also didn’t bother freezing the butter or shortening like I did the first time. It made the food processor hard to use.


I made the dough, then made the filling, and kept them both chilled. When it came time to bake, I assembled the pie while the oven preheated to 400 degrees. Once I placed the pie in the oven, I reduced the heat to 375 degrees. Then, I baked it for about 1.5 hours until the crust was nice and brown on top.



There was a lot of filling…




My biggest problem with pot pie is always how to serve it so that it stays intact.


After all this, it tasted delicious, but K and I decided we prefer single crusts. It was almost too much crust for the filling for us. But, you can decide for yourselves.
